The Sacramento Police Department is looking for a man they suspect of sexually assaulting several minors.

A Police Department news release said an arrest warrant accuses Odis Williams (photo), 51, of committing the illegal sexual acts from 2001 to 2009.

The investigation showed that he also sexually assaulted a teenage friend of the victims, the release states. The last incident of sexual assault occurred in early 2009, the release states.

"It is believed that Odis Williams is aware that he is wanted and is on the run," the release states.

Williams is described as a black male, 6'2", 215 lbs with black hair, and dark eyes.
